  • The Glenn Miller Story. A man and a woman embrace under the title of the film.

To mark the 80th anniversary of Glenn Miller’s death we’re delighted to screen this classic biopic.

2024 will also be 80 years since he performed at both Greenham Common and at the Newbury Corn Exchange where this screening will take place.

From his humble beginnings on an Iowa farm to his global fame as a best-selling recording artist, Glenn Miller’s story is one of a true American hero. Oscar-winner James Stewart (The Philadelphia Story) and June Allyson (Till the Clouds Roll By) light up the screen in this tribute to the legendary big-band leader.

This gripping drama features original Miller music performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra; iconic musicians such as Gene Krupa, Frances Langford and Louis Armstrong; and a supporting cast that includes Harry Morgan, Charles Drake and George Tobias. Experience the dynamic sounds of swing as it plays once again on the big screen.
